Family's fun during the autumn holiday > Sun 29 Oct 2017

During the autumn holiday the  Zuiderzee Museum offers all sorts of fun activities for the whole family. Have a look at the different craft demonstrations and join in with fun games and other activities. Make your own skipping rope and meet the 'residents' of the Outdoor Museum. Attend a geography or handwriting lesson of former times and find out how things were done in those days. In the Outdoor Museum children can dress up as Volendam or Marken inhabitants of round 1900. Or would you rather be occupied in a creative way? Then come to the hobby studio and make a painting, or pimp a wooden shoe. And in the chapel quarter you can make a wooden-shoe boat for a small fee.   


The Zuiderzee Museum aims to keep crafts alive and this season they receive even more attention within the context of the central theme Handmade. In the Outdoor Museum, visit the workshops of the fish smoker, sailmaker, ropemaker, netmaker, smith, cooper, stoker and basket weaver. Find out how it is that even today their craftsmanship is of great value and get to work on these trades yourself! In a pavilion designed especially for this year, you can set to work with typical Zuiderzee materials. Discover your creative talents and artisanal qualities. A great experience!
